Smallest room I've ever stayed in--about 12x12. They tried to squeeze a king size bed in there and a reg double would have more than filled it. Absolutely too small to walk around the room w/o moving chairs or closing closet door or moving other things out of way.
Wall-mounted A/C just inside door was only 8 feet from our heads so running it while we tried to sleep was idiotic. Noise was comparable to having a room next to highway. We tried to cool room down and then turn A/C off when we went to bed.
Room was not clean. Maids couldn't get to the walls due to cramped quarters so they left a 1-2 inch dust track all around floors where they met the bottom of walls. Sink was located in the room because the bath was too small. And the sink was about what you would find in a jail--corner mounted and no area to place toiletries, shaver, etc.
Curtains did not provide adequate closure so outside lights shined in on each side of window.
Receptionist (owner??) seemed to make a big deal of paying in advance. Most places take your credit card at check in and make no big deal of it. Continental breakfast wasn't available until 8 AM when most people are up and out, so this was a throw-away part of our room cost. Rate was way too high in comparison for this town and especially this motel. We stayed at a B&B only 1 1/2 hrs on other side of Yosemite that charged the same amount and was three times the value. Why did we stay there you ask? We were trying to find a place that avoided all the junk we had experienced in Lee Vining in past trips. Bridgeport seemed a nicer place and we decided to try it. Bad decision.
One final comment: Lodge makes a big point of it's river view rooms and charges $10-20 more for those rooms. W. River is an overgrown "crick" by my southern experiences; you can almost jump across it if it wasn't for the weeds and bushes that prevent you from accessing most of it. The lodge BBQ was also out in the sun with no protection. Not a very pleasant situation.
